Top 10 American Cities Populated with Insane People

Had this sent to me by a friend today. Sad, but true.

Einstein once said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

It is the disadvantaged who habitually elect Democrats — yet are still disadvantaged.

GLENN BECK… what do the top 10 cities with the highest poverty have in common… Democrat leadership:

City, State, % of People Below the Poverty Level
1. Detroit, MI — 32.5%
2. Buffalo, NY — 29.9%
3. Cincinnati, OH — 27.8%
4. Cleveland, OH — 27.0%
5. Miami, FL — 26.9%
6. St. Louis, MO — 26.8%
7. El Paso, TX — 26.4%
8. Milwaukee, WI — 26.2%
9. Philadelphia, PA — 25.1%
10. Newark, NJ — 24.2%
U.S. Census Bureau, 2006 American Community Survey, August 2007

What do the top ten cities (over 250,000) with the highest poverty rate all have in common?

Detroit, MI (1st on the poverty rate list) hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1961; (47 years)
